Happy New Year!!!
So I guess everyone’s made their resolutions, or not, but the New Year screams new beginnings for so many. The tendency is to make this long list of things that we listed last year and the year before that didn’t happen. Well, this year, I’m not doing that to myself! A wonderful life-saving email appeared in my inbox and totally stunned me! Such a wonderful concept!
I have the bible app via www.Bible.com and the email I received from them was to choose one verse to focus on this year. Seemed simple enough so I began to pray about it, but then I also saw this plan on there that was about focusing on one word for the year, even better! So I started the plan, which is only 4 days long, and was amazed at how my one verse and my one word seems to go hand in hand! God is awesome! For more information about this, click here.
SO my one word is Purpose and my one verse is 1 Timothy 4:16. This is so freeing for me because, now instead of killing myself with all the things I need to change or accomplish, I can go through my own process of elimination and if whatever it is has nothing to do with my purpose or verse that was given to me by the Holy Spirit, then I waste no time or energy trying to pursue or change it.
Now, I know there will be challenges along the way as the enemy will definitely try to knock me off course but I can always go back to my one word and one verse to get me back on track.
What do you think? Does this sound simple to you, freeing even? Check it out for yourself. Let me know what your one verse and one word is. Maybe we can walk this out together this year and see if this approach is as good as it seems so far 🙂
Here’s to an amazing 2014!!
Be blessed & encouraged,
